Jimmy McGill will be back: Better Call Saul has been renewed for a third season, AMC announced Tuesday.
The Breaking Bad prequel series’ Season 3 will consist of 10 episodes. Showrunners Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould will continue in their roles.
“What Vince, Peter, Bob [Odenkirk] and the entire team have accomplished with Better Call Saul is truly rare and remarkable. They have taken one of the most iconic, immersive and fan-obsessive (in the best possible way) shows in television history and created a prequel that stands on its own,” said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios, in a statement. “Watching Jimmy McGill’s thoughtful, melodic and morally flexible transformation into Saul Goodman is entertaining and delighting millions of fans, whether their starting point was Breaking Bad or not. This series has its own feel, pace and sensibility and we can’t wait to see what this incredibly talented group comes up with next in Season 3.”
According to AMC, the Emmy-nominated drama — which recently was graced by a visit from another Breaking Bad character — is averaging 4.4 million viewers per episode in its second season, 2.5 million of them in the 18-49 demo.
